    The Legend of 1900

    ★★★

    “You’re a minority, get used to it.”

    Tim Roth’s character molests a child and after that you kind of lose all empathy for the boat boy.

    The Adventures of Mikuru Asahina

    ★★★½

    "That was ventriloquism."

    Probably the best episode.

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji

    ★★★★★

    This was just spectacular through and through with the final act leaving me speechless.

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji seems to join two eras of Japanese cinema together, with its charming sense of humour and humanity that could make it a contemporary with the works of Yamanaka and Ozu (Ozu and Shimizu are both credited as some sort of producers) whilst its themes of class and its brutailty almost definetly inspired Hara-Kiri and the other 'cruel Jidai-Geki'.

    This makes sense…
